Scholarcy highlights

  • The elimination of digitoxin with a half-life of 6–8 days in plasma and urine is very slow
  • The metabolism of digitoxin in man is assumed to occur with a cleavage of digitoxose side chains, with a β-hydroxylation of digitoxin to digoxin, and with a formation of polar Compounds
  • There-fore, in this paper new data on digitoxin kinetics are presented during maintenance therapy
  • These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves
